Komatsu launch Battery-Electric Drilling and Bolting Rigs


Komatsu has introduced the second generation of the company’s Z2 product line of small-class development drill and bolting equipment. The company say that the products have unique enhancements and additions, including the first battery-electric offerings within Komatsu’s underground hard rock portfolio, an innovative pumpable resin system solution, optimized ergonomics and more.

The small-class ZJ21 jumbo drill and ZB21 bolter were initially launched in 2020 with a common platform. The new Z2 bolters and jumbos also feature optimized operator ergonomics designed to maximize comfort and visibility, user-friendly intuitive controls and engineering for ground-level maintenance, Komatsu go on to explain.

“As underground mining operations increasingly shift toward electrification of their fleets, our innovative, battery-powered Z2 jumbo drills and bolters will support that pivotal transition. By integrating into existing infrastructure, we can help enhance productivity while helping to reduce operating costs. The rollout of our second generation Z2-class marks a milestone in our commitment to advancing mining technologies and building upon the proven success of our products to empower the future of mine operators." said Johan Kempe, Product Director for Underground Drilling at Komatsu.
